What are the Self-Esteem Benefits to Having a Hair Transplant?

Hair loss is a common health problem for men and women. Since healthy hair plays a vital role in showing off a person's personality, it only makes sense that hair loss affects their overall self-esteem. Fortunately, natural, undetectable hair restoration can now be achieved through hair transplant surgery.

During hair transplant surgery, you are both the donor and recipient during the procedure with hair begin removed from the donor zone in the back of your head where your hair is genetically programmed to grow for life. There are two methods of harvesting your donor hair: Strip Harvesting (FUT)in which a strip of tissue is removed and then the individual follicular units are dissected underneath a microscope or (FUE) Follicular Unit Extraction in which grafts are harvested individually without a linear incision or scar. After this step, your hair transplant surgeon creates recipient sites in the proper angle, direction and orientation. Finally, your hair grafts are transplanted to the balding and thinning areas of your scalp by a surgery technician who places each graft carefully and meticulously into those recipient sites according to your surgeon's artistic plan . With today's technology, hair transplant results are perfectly natural and undetectable.


Fortunately, there are a lot of benefits that come with hair transplant surgery:

1. It is the only permanent solution for hair loss.

2. A perfectly natural result can be achieved.

3. It relieves the anxiety of having to hide or disguise your hair loss daily.

4. It saves you time from your daily grooming routine of camouflaging your hair loss with styling your hair, applying cover-ups or needing a wardrobe of interesting caps or hats.

5. It restores your sense of self and well-being.

4. It’s an investment, but in the end will probably save you time and money.


Selecting a surgeon with experience with the new technologies and surgical techniques is key. Ask your surgeon to share patient photos that allow you to see his or her work. Also, you can ask to speak to a few of your prospective surgeon’s patients who have had the procedure, so you can hear firsthand about their experience and results. A good patient is a well-informed patient.
